World Nursery Rhyme Week
Last week was ‘World Nursery Rhyme Week’ and to really make the most of it the children in Seahorse and Starfish class visited Bridgemary Library to have a ‘rhyme time’ session. This included singing some of our favourite nursery rhymes and listening to a rhyming story with Carol, a library volunteer.
The children we very sensible when walking to and from the library and members of the public had commented on how well behaved the children were.
Some of the children’s favourite nursery rhymes throughout the week were: Lavenders blue, wind the bobbin up and sing a rainbow. They enjoyed learning the makaton actions to go with this.

This morning, the school celebrated good learners from across Holbrook, who have shown excellent learning skills in lessons, including the school’s transformers of Resilience, Collaboration, Stickability and Knowing Yourself.
Certificates were presented to children for continuing to stick at their writing, working collaboratively for a joint writing outcome and researching topics outside of school in their own time. Other children received certificates for their careful thinking skills, explaining their thoughts and for their superb work with their phonics. Two children received certificates for their excellent poetry and others were awarded certificates for their success in the recent table tennis tournament.

The reception children have had a fantastic first week in their new classes. They have been very busy exploring the learning environment both indoors and out. This week they have started to learn the different phonic sounds, practising reading and recognising numbers to 10 and enjoying story time in key worker groups.

This morning saw Starfish class perform an amazing assembly based on their topic of SUPERHEROES!
Filled with brave and interesting heroes from around the world, in movies, comics and on the TV, the children in Starfish class presented their recent work on Supertato.
The children also retold part of the Supertato story, including the rescue of the fruit and vegetables from the Evil Peas!
Characters included Superman, Wonderwoman, Batman, Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles and even a giant banana! The children had learned the Makaton signs for “I Need A Hero”, which they performed excellently! If you want to listen to the tune again, click here:
